Witch Hazel Distillate-Alcohol Free
Our Witch Hazel Distillate-Alcohol Free is a clear, colorless botanical extract prepared from the recently cut and partially dried, dormant twigs of the Hamamelis Virginiana Linne plant. This distillate offers a variety of benefits for the skin and personal care applications in both cosmetics and pharmaceutical products.
Alcohol free distillates are particularly advantageous for applications that require the soothing natural astringent properties of Witch Hazel, but where the use of alcohol is not appropriate. Such formulations may include those with constraints in:
- Processing parameters - high surfactant, multi-phase, or hight temperature products.
- Product performance - foaming products, body washes, mousses, creams
- Marketing claims - alcohol free, sting free and sensitive skin formulations.
The most popular uses are for products where irritation or skin feel is of primary concern. Many customers specify alcohol free witch hazel distillate for treatment products including, anti-irritant products for sun care, wound care, children's sting free products and other products where skin sensitization is an issue.
Applications of alcohol witch hazel:
- Sensitive Skin Formulations - Eye creams / gels / serums, shaving creams
- Alcohol Free Formulations - Toners, Cleansers
- Treatment Products - Wound care, Sun care, Eye Care

I purchased this product thinking it was the same as the alcohol-free witch hazel product that Bulk Apothecary used to stock. It is not. This product contains both methylparaben and propylparaben, chemical preservatives, with the latter ranking a 9 out of 10 in the EWG skindeep database.
I'm most disappointed in myself that I didn't read the ingredients before opening and using the product on my body. Word to the wise, request an ingredient listing before purchasing products.
